This study examined the factors that affect nurse intention to implement creative group activities among psychiatric patients.
Design and Methods
The study used a cross-sectional design. One hundred psychiatric nurses completed a questionnaire based on the theory of reasoned action.
The findings indicate that the theory predicts nurse intention to implement these activities, and the most significant factors for this intention are their previous implementation and the effect of nursing managers.
Nursing managers should support nurses to implement creative group activities among psychiatric patients, and provide appropriate training.
